Postage/Shipping rates

USPS Postage/Shipping rates are schedule to increase on 1/27/13 although this new stamp, Emancipation Proclamation, was issued yesterday as a "Forever" stamp. I think I'm going to have to get some of these just for the graphic appeal.

First Class 1 oz = $.46

First Class 2 oz = $.66

Priority Flat Rate Envelope = $5.60

Priority Flat Rate Padded Env = $5.95

Priority Flat Rate Med Box = $12.35

Canada Flat Rate Env = $19.95

Int'l Flat Rate Env = $23.95

Frankly, shipping rates/fees irk me. They are always much higher than they need to be for the item that is being shipped. For that reason, I try very hard to find the best size shipping envelope and/or box for each and every order. No matter how badly I want the USPS to stay in business. :)

Anyway, I'm extending my "Blow-Out" sale until the 27th so you can take advantage of both my low prices and the lower shipping rates.

Take care,
